Artists in Action #78


In 1909, three years before Carl Laemmle founds the Universal Film Manufacturing Co, Bela Lugosi asks:

"Whereunto then shall I liken the men of this generation? and to what are they like?"

Then answers:

"They are like unto children sitting in the marketplace, and calling one to another, and saying, 'We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned to you, and ye have not wept'."

Perhaps Luke:7:33 might be more apt.

"For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine; and ye say, He hath a devil."
